Six Galway players have been named on the 2022 Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Football Team of the Year.
The team features six players from All-Ireland champions Galway, while All-Ireland finalists, Mayo, have four players represented. Ulster finalists Derry have two, while Tyrone, Kerry and Dublin each have one player on this year’s team.
Galway’s Tomás Farthing has also been named as the 2022 Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Football Player of the Year. The An Spidéal defender was at the heart of the Galway defence throughout the season and proved to be a pivotal player for the Tribesmen, claiming the Electric Ireland Best & Fairest Award in both the All-Ireland Semi-Final and Final.
The team was selected by a panel of GAA experts and was determined in part by Electric Ireland’s ‘Minor Moments of the Week’ initiative on Twitter via @ElectricIreland and #GAAThisIsMajor.
